Robert Pattinson to Star in Cosmopolis

Robert Pattinson Risks It All For Cosmopolis

Robert Pattinson is definitely building momentum with his career outside of the Twilight film franchise. The heartthrob is already stirring up buzz with the hot trailer (and photos) for Water for Elephants, but we'll soon see him in yet another book adaptation.

Pattinson has signed on for the film version of author Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis. The story follows multibillionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) over the course of a day as he travels across Manhattan, bets large amounts of money against the yen, encounters his wife, and gets mixed up in an assassination. As Packer, Pattinson will undoubtedly carry the film (most of the story's action takes place inside of Packer's limo), but he already has a solid supporting cast behind him, including Paul Giamatti and Marion Cotillard.

Pattinson's acting abilities have always been a topic of heated debate here on Buzz (most recently in our Best Dramatic Actor poll), but even the Rob haters have to admit: this latest project definitely earns him more serious cred.

The premise of that movie sounds so good, and yet I have so much trouble believing him in any other role but Edward Cullen. I don't doubt that he's a good actor, but I literally have never seen him in anything but Twilight trailers (I've never even seen the movies because I actually have good taste) so it's difficult for me to even imagine...

i just read about this on eonline and i think that it would be a GREAT role for him to take since it's so different than everything that he's done and it's a role that seems like he'd be well suited for. i'd definitely go to check it out so i hope that they are able to finish negotiations and sign him.
